Muller Martini Tempo 22 Saddle Stitcher Delivers Increased Productivity and Higher Profit Potential to Nahan Printing
Through its automated controls, the Muller Martini Tempo 22 saddle stitcher can boost efficiency substantially. The stitcher is equipped with the proprietary MMAP (Muller Martini Automation Platform), providing an overview of the entire production sequence. Automated servo and AMRYS (Automatic Make-Ready System) technology throughout the system ensure robust performance and superior productivity. Quick, repeatable and user-friendly make-ready settings enable operators to set up and change jobs in moments utilizing intuitive touchscreen controls. Tempo 22 features open control architecture and a ProfiBus interface, giving it the flexibility and connectivity to be used with any controller on the market. Tempo 22 is also JDF and JMF ready in accordance with CIP4 standards to take optimal advantage of digital workflow.
The Tempo 22 saddle stitcher has a rated top speed of 22,000 cycles per hour. One of the benchmarks in measuring today’s most advanced and fastest stitchers is how close net speed (or actual speed) is to the rated number. Tempo 22, which has been installed at printing and binding companies throughout the industry running high-volume as well as mid-range jobs, routinely achieves net production speeds of 18,000 to 19,000 c/hr. in start-up environments.
Another important advantage of the Tempo 22 stitcher is its versatility. Tempo 22 can be configured with up to 40 feeders, including Muller Martini’s new 416 horizontal signature feeders that allow fast outside access to all adjustments for precise, reproducible settings on-the-fly. The new accelerator rollers on the 416 feeders automatically speed up product to match line speed. What’s more, when the Tempo 22 is fitted with these enhanced rollers, product can be securely placed to the gathering chain pin to enhance balance and reduce line jams.
Among the many other operational benefits of the Tempo 22 saddle stitcher are:
• Multitude of quality controls including oblique sheet and long book control, plus stitch monitors and trim monitors;
